The students in Mr. Adams’ 8th grade art class started with PhotoBooth to create a high contrast image of themselves. They printed three copies and made three stencils, reducing their images to just white, gray and black. After carefully cutting out each stencil, students used the silkscreen printing process to force colored ink through the screens with a squeegee, onto paper.
This work was inspired by the Pop Art of Andy Warhol and was a challenging and, at times, frustrating project for the students. But with meticulous work and patience the final results speak for themselves.
